View Full Version : [ubuntu] Video out to TV

January 7th, 2011, 07:07 AM
Using 10.10 with all the upgrades. Have a Dell Inspiron 6000 with s-video output hooked up to a standard TV. Turning on the external monitor gives me a picture on the TV that is scrambled. I suspect that the problem is with the video driver that ubuntu has loaded. I can not add any visual effects because I can not find a driver that will work with this old laptop. I have checked a lot of websites without finding anything that works. One more try here and then I call it quits. Thanks, Mike

It's tricky, cause I think you forgot to mention the hardware specs. Many older laptops have Intel's 8xxx graphics, which badly maintained drivers. Is that your case?
